Re: Cleaning Water Pools, Food Dishes, and Other Items???

I've read somewhere on here that as long as the final rinse is dechlor it's ok to wash things down with tap water. btw I switched to glazed ceramic food dishes recently & find the food doesn't stick to them nearly as much as what I was using before, so that night make your cleaning easier.

Re: Live Mealworms

I've done it several times, usually one crab crawls in and double claws the entire bowl. Mealworms aren't much to worry about in a crab tank, they don't bury deep, they aren't known for going after live creatures, and they do very poorly in humidity as they are a desert species. ok, so they may act...

Re: Pet Sand

they might get more used to you over time, but crabs have different personalities and some are just more skittish. they are supposed to hide during the day though. sometimes I don't see mine for days but I know they're up every night because I wake up to find food flung all over the crabitat.

Live Mealworms

Has anyone else found that their crabs go CRAZY for live mealworms? Every time I leave some out the dish is totally empty the next morning, and one time they even dragged it halfway across the tat to the entrance of one of their hides.

Re: Crab in middle of Surface molting!

his new exo will be soft and vulnerable after molting, so for now it would be best to separate him from the other crabs.
